The home team started as they meant to go, pressing Melilla, who looked exhausted from the first minute, lacking the energy to keep up with Madrid's frantic attacking, and Marco Asensio rediscovered his golden touch against the minnows, scoring twice and laying on a lovely assist for Javi Sanchez, who took his attempt like the very best of #9's around.

Real Madrid playmaker Isco is once again being linked with a move to Anfield in the near future.
"The first leg was very good because we put in a very good performance with a good attitude and intensity, against a team that play very good football and are top of their group in Segunda B".
Forwards: Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Mariano Diaz, Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior.
"He's tired and has some discomfort, the games against Eibar and Roma and it took a lot out of him, it's normal that he's exhausted", said Solari.
The pair are likely to start alongside Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric in the midfield trio on Sunday.
Many have questioned the result given Modric's underwhelming start to the 2018-19 campaign, but Solari has no doubt the Croatian deserves his prize. "The focus has to be on him". It seems to me that at that age it's more attractive because he can truly value it.
"I'm very happy for Isco, I was very sorry that he missed the one played in the first half, because it would have been a great goal", he told reporters.
This match will not be broadcast live on UK TV.
Solari was taking charge of his first game as temporary boss when Real cruised to a 4-0 win in the away leg against the third-tier side at the end of October.
